Before I saw anything, before I even entered my studio, I knew something was up.
To be perfectly honest, up and down.
The scent of the paperwhite narcissus blossoms is distinctive, certainly not easy to miss. The bulbs from Day 3 of this challenge had been growing rapidly this past week and I was looking forward to them blooming.
But when I looked for them, well, they were gone.
There was however, a lot of water.
And sure enough, under the table was a bowl on it's side, several leggy/rooty flower stems, and tons of cranberries all scattered over the floor. After cleanup, I figured I'd better make good on my promise to paint them after they bloomed... so here you have Day 26.
Lesson #1: Stake the stalks before it's too late.
Lesson #2: Dogs will eat raw cranberries given the chance. Which is good, because it insures that they won't
get scurvy, in case you were worried about that.
